1. A power steering gear assembly and steering system for a vehicle having wheels or the like comprising a cylinder housing, a double acting piston in said housing forming chambers at opposite ends, said ends being fixed relative to each other and a fixed length rack formed on one side of said piston, an output steering gear meshing with said rack, a steering crank connected to said gear, steering linkage between said crank and said wheels, a low pressure space in said housing separated from said chambers by the ends of said pistons and enclosing said gear, single fluid transfer means for each of said chambers to allow alternate introduction of high pressure working fluid to one of said chambers to power the piston and concurrent exhausting of the other chamber, check valve means at each end of said piston communicating with the adjacent chamber and having closed positions in opposite directions so as to prevent escape of high pressure working fluid from said one chamber, passageway means in said piston communicating with said check valve means and said low pressure space, said check valve means allowing escape of fluid from said low pressure space to said other chamber being exhausted, whereby build-up of fluid pressure in said space is prevented.
The power steering gear assembly of the present invention is particularly adapted for use as a slave unit in the dual power steering system. Advantageously, only a single hose attachment needs to be provided at each end of the cylinder which thus serves both the power and the exhaust fluid transfer functions. This eliminates completely the provision of a separate exhaust directly attached to the enclosure for the power output gear, as is used in a master power steering unit with valve in the piston, as shown in my previous US. Pat. No. 3,092,083.
